    Master of the Senate carries Lyndon Johnson's story through one of its most remarkable periods: his 12 years, from 1949 to 1960, in the United States Senate. Once the most august and revered body in politics, by the time Johnson arrived the Senate had become a parody of itself and an obstacle that for decades had blocked desperately needed liberal legislation. Caro shows how Johnson's brilliance, charm, and ruthlessness enabled him to become the youngest and most powerful Majority Leader in history.

    The learning from the story is priceless.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Master of the Senate?

    To learn about the "real LBJ" and some specifics about his relationship with RK. The "real LBJ" is beyond belief (almost).
